I know there's a lot of these itineraries, and I'm posting to the California, Oregon and Washington forums as well. I've been to SF many times and need no help there. My wife has never been to the PAC NW, and I want to give her a taste, without wanting to be exhaustive. We can go back. For the record, I've done the Portland-Olympic National Park (Lake Quinault Lodge) - Seattle trip and the Seattle-Port Townsend- Lake Crescent-Victoria-Vancouver trip.
Leaving SF morning of June 25 and heading north. Flying back home out of Seattle July 3. Know there will be days with lots of driving.
Night One: Mendocino (It's my 1960's self yearning)
Night Two: Redwoods area (Eureka or Trinidad or Crescent City)
Night Three: Oregon Coast (suggestions?)
Night Four: Portland
Night Five: Portland (including day trip through Columbia River Gorge)
Night Six: Olympic National Park (either Lake Quinault or Lake Crescent or near Hoh)
Nights seven and eight: Seattle
Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks so much in advance.
